SHE CAN STEAL THE HEART OF EVERY GIRL…EXCEPT THE ONE WHO STOLE HER BIKE!

Leo’s the hottest senior at Princess Andromeda Academy, and her adoring fangirls have one goal: to beat her in a road race so she’ll go out with them. Unfortunately, the only thing Leo loves more than breaking hearts is her faithful old motorcycle, Bethany. But the arrival of mysterious new girl Vega upends her daily routine forever.

Now it’s graduation season, and with her beloved motorcycle gone, Leo finds herself facing a lonely summer at an all-time low…until mysterious beauty Vega comes crashing back into her life. The two strike a deal that puts Leo’s bike – and dignity – on the line. Will Leo rise to the occasion, or lose Bethany forever? What’s Vega’s deal, anyway? And what’s this burning feeling in both of their hearts??? 

ROADQUEEN: ETERNAL ROADTRIP TO LOVE contains strong language, nudity, and sexual content and is recommended for mature readers 18+ only.

Goodreads

Every page of this graphic novel was an absolute delight. I literally screamed several times, and I retold almost every page to my girlfriend before forcing it to read it for herself. Every queer lady should read this hilarious story about a lesbian f***boy who is duped into becoming a “decent lesbian,” full of hot ladies, motorcycles, fake dating, and emotions.

Everything about this book is ridiculous, but it is so unapologetically happy in its lesbian fever dream that it invites readers to revel in the drama. Leo is beloved by everyone in her school, but she won’t give any of the girls the time of day. When a mysterious hot transfer student fixes her motorcycle, Leo falls in love…only for the hot girl to disappear! Instead of learning her lesson and appreciating other girls, Leo sulks and continues to ignore her adoring fans. The hot girl (Vega) reappears to scold Leo for failing to become a decent lesbian. What the actual heck?? Hahaha, this all takes place in the first 30 pages or so. The majority of the book is what comes next: Vega’s second scheme is to force Leo to date her for a week and prove that she can be a good girlfriend. Cue fitting room montages, carnival games, and starlit conversations! Motivations are revealed, adorable epilogues are gifted, and I am just tearing through each page with gigantic heart eyes.

I assume there are people out there who would think this book is dumb, but I have no time for those people. This is maybe the greatest thing I’ve ever read, and I genuinely want to print multiple pages from this book to hang in my house.

Who Would I Recommend This Book To?

Gay ladies with a sense of humor.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
